Canadian gov’t scraps plan for interprovincial trucker jab mandate after Freedom Convoy protests
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's Cabinet is shelving plans to introduce an interprovincial trucker COVID jab mandate. The decision follows the dispersal of the Canadian trucker-led Freedom Convoy that descended upon Ottawa in January to demand an end to virus dictates.
Once in the capital city, many of the truckers
stayed put for nearly three weeks and did not leave until they were
forcibly ousted by the police, who used the
Emergencies Act (EA) as justification. Labeled by the prime minister a "fringe
minority" with "unacceptable views," in reality the Freedom Convoy protesters
were overwhelmingly peaceful.
